From following the style set around the streets to sitting front row with editors, celebrities and the like, we now venture to where the magic really happens: backstage. A dark, sometimes chaotic labyrinth of nooks and crannies; backstage at Carriageworks is where all the makeup and hair unfolds. Catch a glimpse of the Dyson Supersonic in action, plus see all the hair trends as they happen at the ACTIVE show.

Using the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, I achieved a loose, relaxed take on the ’70s flick.

Feeling a little European, I opted for a Jacquemus top and bag, a Balenciaga heel and paired this back with a simple black Zara pant.

At ACTIVE, in keeping with the physical nature of the show, there were myriad iterations of natural texture.

The clean, low ponytail was both relaxed and cool, and again referenced the natural texture of the models hair.

It celebrated the individuality of the model and championed the trend of ‘lived-in’ hair.
